We’re supposed to be enjoying the waves now and playing ball in the sand, but for some reasons, we didn’t make it. I actually felt bad for my kids, I know how they wanted to play and see Sihanoukville. Blame me for this, I can take it, but I just can’t enjoy the trip if I know something not so good will come along the way. I promise we’ll be there some other time, not now…especially everybody’s there…too crowded! Lodge holidays are mostly double or triple the regular prices too, taking advantage of the vacationists pockets. Well, you need to be prepared in occasions like this because it’s normal for hotels and lodges to make efforts and increase their prices.
Anyhow, staying in the Penh doesn’t make any big deal. It doesn’t mean that we’ll not make some fun here. Yesterday, we made time to play in the kitchen and everybody helped in cooking food. Nestle made sauteed seguidillas, Ate Andrea helped me in making siopao asado, Aiken helped in pork siomai, Kuya Aaron arranged the plates on the table, and Kuya Biggie supplied the booze 😛 It rained in the afternoon so the malling didn’t push through.
Today, the market’s closed (stupid me for not thinking about this in advance!!!) and there’s nothing much to buy, beef is all we’ve purchased and I’m gonna make some pan fried steak for the family before heading to the sports club and swim.
Most people are in pagodas now praying and offering foods for their deceased relatives. It’s almost the same thing in the Philippines during All Saints/Souls Day on 1st of November. Last year we went to Udong Temple, where we climbed the hill twice (too much energy just for photos).
The school gave us a 9-day break and looks like we’re gonna do this again next year. If so, I can plan ahead my family’s vacation next year 🙂 Yey!
